Product Description

THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA & THE ROYAL CHORAL SOCIETY PLAY THE MUSIC OF FREDDIE MERCURY AND QUEEN

Set to Thrilling Sports Action

Legendary Rock group QUEEN was led for two decades by the charismatic flamboyance of lead singer Freddie Mercury. Together with drummer Roger Taylor, lead guitarist Brian May, and bassist John Deacon, the Rock quartet carved out a unique and lasting place in Rock 'n' Roll history, creating classics such as Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

The spirit of Queen's soaring melodies, layered harmonies, grandiose arrangements, and ferociously pounding rhythms are reinterpreted beautifully by one of the world's foremost Classical orchestras The Royal Philharmonic, led by Louis Clark, creator of the international hit series, Hooked On Classics.

Meticulous editing of spectacular sports footage is an intoxicating and hypnotic visual accompaniment that truly captures the feeling of Queen's music and lyrics.

V.I.E.W. is proud to present this combination of the iconic hit songs of Queen, music from the ensemble widely considered the National Orchestra of England, the compositions and arrangements of Louis Clark, and live-action international sports footage, resulting in an exhilarating and absorbing DVD.

Review

Soothing change of pace and good music mixed with delightful footage. The masterful mix of audio and visual are as refreshing as a morning dip in the ocean… Spectacular sports footage is edited in beat with the arrangements. --Martie Zad, The Washington Post

The juxtaposition of audio and the visual works surprisingly well- especially in the more graceful sports like sailing and sky diving. --The Canadian Press

Those who like Sports and the quasi-classical sound of Queen will be enthusiastic... Exciting yet fairly short clips of sports activities effectively reflect the music's melodies and rhythms to make a satisfying and fast-paced music video. The Royal Philharmonic plays as well as one might expect from an orchestra of its caliber... The color is vivid and the editing well done... This is an exciting, well-played music video that may well appeal to Queen and sports fans alike. --Video Rating Guide for Libraries

Format: VHS Tape
From Louis Clark, the creator of the international hit, Hooked On Classics, comes this special tribute program to the legendary rock group Queen. Louis has taken seven of Queen's greatest hits and arranged them for performances by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir. Meticulously edited sports footage creates an hypnotic and powerful visual accompaniment to the soaring melodies, multi-layered harmonies and grandiose arrangements which are the hallmarks of Queen's sound. #1335 - 38 min

Format: VHS Tape
The video footage shown is OLD, it is stock footage of sport events from the mid 70's, so, OLD motorcicles, OLD prototype racing cars, etc.

The music is something very SAD to listen to, like listening to Queen in an elevator or a shopping mall. In NO way reflects the strong and magnificent original songs, even Bohemian Rhapsody lacks a good arrangement. They all sound like bad MIDI conversions.

The pace is SLOW and the video sequences do not make any sense to the music being played.

I had this video years ago and always enjoyed the musical arrangements set to amusing and/or beautiful sports related videos. I was very happy to have it in DVD format and enjoyed it all over again.
